The lightning rod consist in a medium size tower with three poles from which electricity generates and creates an electric field around it. It can be placed only on land, however cannot be placed nearby coal.
It is an important structure and one of the main electricity sources from which other structures can be built and can work. Also to build certain units. The lightning rod is also required to build more advanced structures.
Specifically, the Rod generates 2 electricity per second; a maximum of four may only be built.
Its development took place along with the lab, as a energy resource collector.
It gathers electricity from whatever is placed. They more they are, the more electricity you generate every second.
